The Chargers placed TE Virgil Green (ankle) on injured reserve.
Green injured his ankle on a touchdown reception against the Jaguars in Week 7. Donald Parham is in line for more work with Green sidelined.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Chargers TE Virgil Green (ankle) is a candidate to be placed on injured reserve.
X-rays on Green's ankle came back negative but he's still expected to miss "several" weeks. Green has primarily been utilized a blocking tight end this year.
Virgil Green brought in his lone target for nine yards in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Titans Sunday.
Green is not a viable fantasy option and is used primarily as a blocking TE.
Virgil Green had two receptions for 28 yards in the Chargers' 25-17 win over the Seahawks Sunday. He was targeted three times.
Green sees more work blocking than he does as a receiver in the Chargers' offense and is not a strong fantasy option.
Virgil Green did not record a catch on one target in the Chargers' 20-19 win over the Titans Sunday in London.
Green is the primary blocking tight end for the Chargers and does not see enough work in the passing game to merit fantasy consideration.
